Microsoft Store Features Warning on Cyberpunk 2077 Store Page
The official Microsoft store features a warning on the Cyberpunk 2077 store page warning players of performance issues until it's updated.
Recently Microsoft released an official statement through the Xbox Support Twitter account that it would be expanding its normal refund policy to those who digitally purchased Cyberpunk 2077 from the Microsoft Store. However, now the Microsoft Store has even put up a warning on the Cyberpunk 2077 store page itself:
The warning states: “Users may experience performance issues when playing this game on Xbox One consoles until this game is updated.” One of those issues is the reveal that Cyberpunk 2077 save files will corrupt and become unrecoverable if they reach 8MB in size, which comes from the GOG.com Support Center itself.
The launch of Cyberpunk 2077 has been riddled with controversy and bugs, with the first update being introduced last week and fixed some issues. Now CD Projekt Red has pushed out the latest update, Update 1.05, for PlayStation and Xbox systems. PC players will be getting the update sometime soon.
Alongside the bugs that plagued its launch, Liana Ruppert from GameInformer suffered a major seizure while playing the game. This was due to light patterns similar to those used by neurologists to help induce seizures in patients. It was also later noted that the game didn’t have a clear epilepsy warning at the start of gameplay, something which has now been remedied.
This same RPG has seen its share of other controversies even before launch with reports of transphobia, and crunch culture, as well as the studio also refusing to share information about the game’s accessibility. Read up on why we think CD Projekt Red should have confirmed Cyberpunk 2077′s accessibility options sooner.
According to a new report from the Bloomberg, executives at CD Projekt took responsibility for the buggy release of Cyberpunk 2077 and told staff that they will receive their full bonuses no matter how the game is reviewed. Previously, the developers were told they would receive extra pay based on the game’s aggregated critical performance represented by Metacritic.
Although Cyberpunk 2077 has more than made up its costs already, it seems that the founders of developer CD Projekt Red are still managing to lose money. A report released by Bloomberg yesterday found that the game’s glitches and rocky launch have cost the founders of CD Projekt Red over $1 billion. Over the course of the past week, the company’s stock has plummeted, although not to record lows.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available for PC, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. As for PS4, retail copies are still around but Sony has removed the game from the PSN Store. The game is also playable on the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 thanks to backward compatibility.
